(Bernard Tyers) #16

Hi all,

We’ve got 7 people who’ve voted on the day for the monthly call.

The poll will be open until this evening. If you want to vote please visit:

@evalica did you specifically vote no to moving it because you only have time on Monday?

(evalica) #18

@jan I’ve changed to Y and Maybe (old was No, because I’ve voted from phone).
Not sure what’s up with Monday, but the Tuesday is a good day for me, that’s why I’ve voted to keep it then.

(Jan-Christoph Borchardt) #19

My mistake, I meant “Tuesday”. :slight_smile:

(Bernard Tyers) #20

So poll is closed now.

The question was:

Should we keep the OSD monthly call as the 1st Tuesday of every month?

The options were Yes, Yes if need be, or No. 9 people voted.

Number of votes cast:

  • Yes, keep monthly call as first Tuesday every month: 6
  • No, move monthly call to another day of the week: 8


Result is we will change the day of the monthly meeting.


You now have a decision to make:

What day of the week, in the 1st week of the month, do you to change the meeting to?

(An assumption is people are still OK with 1st week in the month. If you also want to change the week of the month, leave a comment with the week number, “2nd”, “3rd” or “4th”, you want to change to.)

If you want to vote, please visit:

The poll will be open til next Wednesday, 16th May.

Questions, criticisms…let me know.

  • Monday - 5 votes

The result is we will change the day of the monthly meeting to the first Wednesday of the month.

@jan I think you have the powers over the calendar reminder, can you date it?

Which means we’ll be having our first meeting of the month in 20 days, 6th of June.

Some questions:

  • Agenda?
  • Still on jitsi? (I think so)
(Jan-Christoph Borchardt) #23

And yes, still on Jitsi as usual:

Hi all,

Just a quick reminder about our upcoming monthly call next Wednesday, September 5th, at 19:00 CEST / Berlin (13:00 EDT / New York) at (

Some of the topics we need to discuss:

  • The Summit
  • OSI

Please add anything else that’s missing: I am sure I am forgetting a ton of stuff.

(Sam Muirhead) #29

Is the monthly call meant to be happening today? I’m in the jitsi room but there’s nobody else here…

Is anybody keen to have another call before the Summit?

(Jan-Christoph Borchardt) #30

Ah sorry, I’m at a workweek and totally missed it. :confused:

@elioqoshi is all set for the summit or should we have a call?

(Sam Muirhead) #31

No problem - it also doesn’t need to be a call, the forum would also work fine.
I guess I’m just curious about what the plans are for the summit, if there’s anything that we can help with, if there are particular topics that people want to work on, etc.

Sorry, I missed this as well.

All is good to go for the summit. Content depends purely on all of us so feel free to design that yourself or just arrive and do a full unconference style session format.

We only have some logistical things to do (catering, some printouts) and some outreach to local designers and the local hackerspace. @mariana will help with that as well I hope.

For website related changes @AnXh3L0 can do PR’s with updates

We also have a photographer who will be around all Saturday to take photos of the event and headshots (if you like)
